I have 4 months left from 6 years H1 Quote and my PERM was applied before 9 months. If I apply for an extension for 4 months and these days its taking 6 month in normal processing. Let’s say for any reason my 4 months extension get rejected and my labor is 1 year old by that time, Can I apply a new request for extension for a year based on pending labor even though previous 4 months is rejected? If yes what about my status for those 4 months?

 

Thanks in advanced for your response.

Yes. If your 4 months extension is denied then you would need to exit and enter US with a valid H1B visa and I797 after H1B extension petition gets approved based on PERM pending for more than a year.

Thanks Jairichi. Here is my plan. I have current visa till July end. I plan to apply in premium process during June for 4 months left from 6 years. I should get either approval/denial within 3 weeks. In case, its denial, I can go on H4 as my spouse is on H1.

My PERM is going to complete 1 year pending status on Oct 1st. So Can I come back from H4 to H1 after Oct 1st? Do you see any issue in this plan? Thanks a lot for your help.

Plan is fine. Just make sure that you have few days or weeks to recapture when employer files for H1B extension based on PERM pending for a year.

Thanks Jairichi. I appreciate the help you are doing to all the needy people. Great work.

 

Just double checking, even if my 4 months extension is denied and I go on H4, I can still apply H1 extension again on base of 1 year old PERM?

 

Does previously rejected H1 (4 months) extension won’t impact on new H1 extension (the one based on 1 year old PERM)?

That is correct. Unless H1B extension is rejected based on your qualifications or your employer's credentials.
